• Is this Cell Rot ?

    Cell Rot


    I have already lost a lovely razor because cell rot. Back then I wasnít aware of the disease at all and the diagnosis was made in this forum.

    The following is a razor that I just received from an auction. It is a well preserved vintage razor that I liked a lot. Especially the scales.
    As soon as I opened the box I saw some signs of rust. I can deal with it and it doesnít bother me. However, I remember that the razor I lost from cell rot in the past began as a rust. I didnít bother back then, but after 6 months the razor was dead.

    Fact is I really like these scales and I certainly donít want to change them just in case this is indeed cell rot. So, I wonder if there is anyone here that can be certain that this is, or this is not cell rot.

    Thank you very much.

    Yup, that is often the case where an importer's name appears on the razor not the makers name with only the country of origin stamped.

    While I do not have the skill (or time) to restore these, I just realized - you have more project razors than I have razors! I may be a bit jealous....
